Support Programs

We have many options for meeting your child’s learning needs at all levels. Please talk with your child’s teacher or school counselor about the most appropriate resources for your child. Many of these programs, with the exception of Barker Creek Community School, are overseen by our  Student Services department. You can learn more about our programs by following the links below.

Special Education Services

Helps students who need specially designed instruction and/or services to achieve success in school. To learn more, visit our Special Services page.

Special Education Referral

To refer your child for special education services, please contact your child’s school psychologist and complete the Special Education referral form (PDF).

When we receive a referral, we may decide that your child needs an evaluation. In an evaluation, a team with members from many specialties will assess your child. They will identify your child’s needs and recommend services and programs.
